So, for this one, it is 2x-14=3x+6
Can someone please explain to me how they would solve this problem?
I think you would add 14 to the 6, but I'm not sure..

subtract 2x from each side.
subtract 6 from each side

OH! So 2x-3x is -1,
-1x-14+6
then subtract 6 from the fourteen
and get -1x= 8
correct?

HuH?

subtract 2x from each side
2x-2x-14=3x-2x+6 or
-14=x+6
subtract six from each side
-14-6=x+6-6
-20=x

Ah, okay. I see what I did wrong, thank you.
